Accurate Location & Boundary Information is Key

Without accurate location and tax jurisdiction information, the determination of taxes is difficult – and if not billed and properly remitted, can create costly liabilities from misspent taxes to bad publicity. Approximately 25% of municipal boundaries in the U.S. change their tax boundaries each year, adding time-consuming research to a company’s staff and with over 8,000 jurisdictions collecting multiple taxes, keeping track of each and every taxing authority for every address could be a logistical nightmare.

CoreLogic® provides parcel and building level geocoding to determine the accurate tax jurisdiction of an inputted address. CoreLogic Tax Assignment Services incorporate up-to-date tax jurisdiction information with detailed municipal boundary files for all 50 states, as well as the 32 states that have local special tax districts. Because the location intelligence behind our tax jurisdiction layers is parcel-based and diligently maintained, address errors common in solutions that use a ZIP code lookup table do not occur (i.e. municipal boundaries constantly changing, postal city not the same as the taxing city, ZIP codes cross both municipal and county boundaries).

In a market defined as “communications,” it is ironic that something as simple as a property address is often relayed incorrectly. A seemingly small error, it adds up to big problems and potentially angry clients when it affects the telecommunications industry. Based on our industry leading location intelligence, our Telecommunication Tax Layer will help eliminate false address positives.

Tax jurisdictions known as Special Tax Districts or “SpTD” are unique because they do not follow municipal boundaries. In addition, they may cover only a portion of a city or county, making it difficult to assess an address’ actual tax jurisdiction footprint. The CoreLogic Tax Jurisdiction Layers cover tax jurisdictions for all 50 states and identifies Special Tax Districts with a high degree of accuracy.
